1. Hazardous Products

Many bathroom cleaning products contain hazardous chemicals that can be harmful especially to children and pets. Bleach is a great disinfectant and used in a lot of cleaners. It’s a powerful chemical that can irritate skin, damage eyes, and can also be dangerous if mixed with other products like ammonia. Many of these products recommend you rinse the areas after use, basically having to clean the area twice. Even the air freshener you use is probably filled with harmful chemicals like formaldehyde. These products are potent and often smell so strong it’s unpleasant as if something needs to smell like fake lemons to be clean!
